Cole has been adopted! 05-07-2023

Male Black Labrador Retriever /Labrador Retriever mix about 4-6 months old. Gets along with other dogs.

Cole is coal black puppy that currently weighs 30 pounds at just 4 months old. He is a Black Labrador Retriever mix. We are not sure what he could be mixed with. He is not going to be too big but he will be solid.

We aren't sure what his past was like. All we were told was he had to get out of a bad situation along with his friend Chloe, who is a young Husky. (Chloe was also posted on our Coastal GSR website but was adopted).

Cole is a little shy but is quickly adapting to his foster home. His fosters describe him as a "mature puppy". He loves his foster dad and sleeps on a dog bed by his side of the bed. He is more tentative about the foster mom and sister. They are bribing him with treats but he is still a bit skeptical about them.

He loves his canine sisters and plays with them, in particular the youngest one. He gets along with the male Chiweenie and wants to play with him but the Chi would rather not. Cole also loves to play with dog toys.

He had a slow start with potty-training because of the rainy weather but he totally has the hang of it now. He runs to the door with his "sisters" to be let outside.

Cole is going on leashed walks. He is getting the hang of being on a leash and is progressing nicely. He loves to play with other dogs when he meets them at the park.

We think that Cole would feel more comfortable and fit in quicker with a new family if there was another mature and friendly dog in the home. This would be especially helpful when the family members were away from the home for long periods of time during the day.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
